THE MISSION OF THE CIC-P

The CIC-P is located in the heart of the La Milétrie hospital site, close to Jean-Bernard and consequently close to functioning short-stay wards. It is open to investigators, whatever their institutional ties, and also to manufacturers wishing to pursue research on healthy or unhealthy humans, with or without direct individual benefit.

  • logistical and technical support for project implementation;
  • high-quality research carried out in facilities adapted to good clinical practices ensuring safety and confidentiality;
  • training by and/or for practitioners, interns, students and trainees.
